this election. >> trouble at the polls. long waits in early voting lines in ohio and florida, but put tempers to the test. >> let them vote! >> the other big wild card, sandy. a week after the storm recovery efforts are still winding slowly through the hardest hit. new jersey governor chris christie who praised president obama's response to sandy repeated his support for mitt romney. sort of. >> on tuesday i'm voting for mitt romney because i think he's the best guy for the job. it doesn't mean that i can't turn to the president of the united states of america and say to him, thank you, sir, for providing good leadership in this crisis. >> and whom do you trust? the grid iron predicts. a redskin hometown defeat favors the challenger but the lsu/alabama matchup offers good news for the incumbent. >> and good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in democracy plaza in new york city. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor, and managing editor of post politics.com and mark halperin political analyst for "time" and msnbc. so, first to you, chris, let's talk about the state of the r
of ways to make his math add up if he doesn't win florida and doesn't win virginia needs it too. i went through and did the most likely scenarios for both sides and didn't realize i had done this, someone pointed out, the only difference between the two maps was ohio. one had barack obama winning one had mitt romney winning. i think obama remains a slight advantage particularly in those swing states but they are in ohio for a reason because it matters the most. >> ask you both what to watch for in the early returns. the polls are going to close, the first polls at 7:00, what are you going to be looking at? >> look for tea leaves in battleground counties not just? swing counties but counties where one side needs to run up the score big if they have a chance. virginia and ohio the two linchpins to this election. ohio the key to the race as chris suggested because if mitt romney found a way to win ohio suddenly the electoral advantage slips on its head. if he wins ohio he will be in the driver's seat. virginia counts quickly. i'm worried ohio will have the irregularities ties to put us i t
, ones we know, florida, new hampshire, iowa, virginia, nevada, colorado, new hampshire, i think ohio belongs in that group. i put it on myself i should have put it in there a few days before now. >> mark halperin, take a look at nbc news poll, iowa, president up but wisconsin and new hampshire, we're talking about a really closely fought race. >> based on the totality of the public and private polling the only us in is on governor romney to depp street get to 270 electoral votes. i think governor romney starts with a challenge which is florida, north carolina, and colorado. if he can win those three, and i think he's got a decent chance in all, although the president hasn't given up on colorado and florida, then he needs to find a couple other -- a couple of options, one is to just win ohio. if he can't win ohio, and virginia also, he needs to win virginia also, okay, if he can't win ohio he needs to find another way. states of the three polls you showed as well as pennsylvania, michigan, he needs to offset a loss in ohio. ohio's the simplest and most competitive the reason they're l
women. and they're still counting votes in florida. not again. nine days after sandy's, the east coast is getting another had hit, a powerful nor'easter, threatening to cause new flooding and power outages in the same areas battered by the hurricane. good day. i'm andrea mitchell, the day after, live in new york. what many expected to be a close contest ended as a resounding electoral college win for president obama. after a hard-fought race spanning two years, so what should we now expect from a second term? joining me now for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com and karen, national political correspondent fors the "washington post," as well as "time's" senior correspondent michael crowley. welcome all. thanks so much. well, our daily fix, what are you looking at, chris cizilla, what are the lessons you've learned and looking at in the four years to come? >> well, yeah. i mean let's talk first about lessons learned, andrea. i would say republicans, to blame mitt romney for this loss in some ways misses the point. if you look at the e
. if you look at states like nevada and colorado, and virginia specifically northern virginia, and florida along the i-4 corridor, the changes to the electorate are facing the republican party in a stark way. president bush realized this and michael and his team and there was significant outreach to the latino community in understanding that the party needed to evolve in that some of those lessons were lost and the devicesive ideological primary that mitt romney made, proposed the dream act to beat rick perry has cost him in the election. there will be that conversation and a loud conversation in the republican party but look, that's what elections do. they teach you lessons. i think michael is right, the party will have that conversation internally and i believe they will be competitive moving forward because they don't have a choice. >> go ahead. >> i think it's a one-sided conversation because if you get 27% of the hispanic vote, you cease to be a national party moving forward. i think most smart republicans will get that. there will be disagreement on how you respond to that but this i
. >> in the house, in florida particularly, you have some really controversial candidates. one is very outspoken tea party republican allen west and the other is allen grayson, running to return to the house. >> any state that could elect either one is an accepting and forgiving electorate or they can't make up their minds. allen west has actually put up his opponent's mug shot from when he was 19 years old and that's unprecedented. most tea party representatives, no matter how controversial they are, will be re-elected. >> what about harry reid in nevada? we've seen that he has a machine in nevada and can deliver. >> he has spent a decade putting together a real democratic machine there. it saved him in 2010 and allowed him to win re-election. and i think that it looks like the state leans towards president obama. but the senate race, the republican has a bit of an advantage there. the problem is that the democratic candidate is not a perfect candidate. she's under investigation by the house ethics committee and that's gotten in her way of getting better known and supported in areas of the state sh
